Ahh... thank you, finally, the voice of some reason. You didn't quite say everything I've been thinking, down this thread and we may still not fully
agree but at least one person on here didn't jump in just for the chance to bash Phage. This has been obscene to read down.
What the hell is wrong with people around here? One post asked if we even COULD measure electromagnetic energy and radiation?! Another saying 'We
don't really know what they do"?!
Where are we?! The Middle Ages with the Bishop holding court over the Scientific "Facts" of the day!? I can't believe the level of outright
ignorance here ..and almost Proudly on display while trying to bash another member..who HAPPENS TO BE RIGHT.
I was TRYING to be nice about how I put it with my charts, but I keep forgetting...in some cases..being subtle is totally wasted time. If one looks at
the charts showing sun activity...things like New Madrid, the San Fran Quake (Both of them to include the more recent one as well) and other major
events happened in a LULL of Solar activity. A quiet period. ...and I'll scream if someone disputes how we can know THAT, although it won't shock me
if the ignorance keeps flowing that way.
THIS is the 1859 Carrington Event. This is what is looked like, felt like and was like to live through.
1859 Carrington Event - Descriptions and First Hand Accounts
Now....*IF* Geomagnetic storms were even CAPABLE of creating Earthquakes, 1859 should have had the mother of all quakes for recent history. The Geo
storm was SO intense, the telegraph lines ran BETTER without batteries and from energy out of the thin air than with them. The Aurora was visible for
days clear down to El Salvador and Venezuela. Brush fires were started from the electrical arcing off telegraph lines. The air itself was that heavily
The Carrington event has been estimated as high as X-60....I generally see X-48ish...but have seen as low as the X-20's suggested. THIS little burp
everyone is playing Mr. Wizard about was classed, by comparison, a higher range M class. That's a joke. That's NOTHING on that scale and we have geo
storms like this recent one fairly often. Damn sure often enough to be in a world of non stop upheaval and chaos IF these quacks writing papers for
more grant money had ANY real basis beyond guess work and theory.
Just my two cents.... Now back to listening to the gallery of PhD's we seem to have here. To listen, we have more doctors running around than JPL.
It's just a shame so many are repeating BAD INFO.
